The Progress column displays configurable aggregate issue progress, which includes progress values from sub-issues.

Progress column allows you to customize how the progress is calculated – based on time tracking, Resolution and Status field, or custom fields. There are several predefined configuration of Progress column, available under Add Column menu. You can add any available preset configuration and then customize it using the column configuration panel (shown when you click the grey arrow in the column header).

Progress is the custom Structure column, not available in the Issue Navigator or other standard JIRA views.

How is Progress Calculated?

Configuration of the progress calculation is divided into two parts:

  1. How individual issue progress is calculated, regardless of its position in the structure.
  2. How progresses from sub-issues are aggregated and combined with individual progress of the parent issue.

Individual Issue Progress Calculation

There are several progress calculation modes. Mode is selected by the Based On option:

Total Progress Calculation

When individual issue progress is calculated based on Status, Percent Field, or Resolution Only, you can specify how individual sub-issue progresses are aggregated into parent issue progress. This is defined by Weight option:

Zero value in the field configured as weight will discard any issue's progress in parent issue aggregation.
